Bad news, you guys. Meek Mill’s latest, Dreams & Nightmares, has been pushed back from August 28th to October 30th. We know that’s majorly bumming you out right now, so we’ll throw in some good news. He’s also just been named Puma’s “Brand Ambassador”! To the release we go!
PUMA has announced that Meek will be the newest ambassador for the sportlifestyle brand. With a strong presence in music and MC culture, the recent partnership reinforces PUMA’s commitment to music talent. Through PUMA’s partnership with Meek, fans will have an opportunity to meet Meek at an exclusive meet-and-greet, and have the chance to party at an exclusive, to-be-announced concert event. Also, PUMA and Philadelphia-based specialty retailer Villa launched the “Be the Next Dreamchaser” music series to give aspiring and emerging artists an opportunity to make their voice heard on a live stage. By submitting their demo entries through DJBooth.net, PUMA and Villa will select 10 finalists who will be featured on a mixtape hosted by PUMA and available for download at DJBooth.net and at select Villa stores. Two of the ten lucky MCs will be selected to open for Meek Mill in a special PUMA and Meek Mill concert later this fall.
